On average 12 to 15 kg during pregnancy, but that's only on average.

If pains not associated with bleeding and scan on Sat was normal, should be fine.

You shouldn't have put on weight yet, although some women retain water which pushes the weight up. The docs like you to put on a kilogram per month of pregnancy, with the ideal weight gain being around 10 -12 kgs by the end.

Period pains dont sound right, best to go to your gynae just to check up.
